In The Hand You’ve Been Dealt, Daryl talks to his son about how he has to accept the way things are and stop whining about their relationship all the time.
Daryl: You look at me like I’m some kind of animal and I can see from your perspective that those thoughts are true.
What you see is a man who doesn’t give a damn about you, a man who will stop at nothing to achieve whatever it is he sets his mind on, a man who has forgotten his past and only looks back for the occasional nod.
I am, I am all those things and more.
I have no excuses for your point of view. It is what I have shown you all these years and you can only go by what you’ve been shown.
I can sit here and cry to you and try to convince you about how much I love you and how I want the best for you but there is no way such words will be believed.
I wouldn’t. I couldn’t. I could not believe such words. I most likely would place a bullet in my own head if I were you. Could you? Do you think you can kill your own father?
What are you to do, Ray? This is the hand you’ve been dealt.
